I've been a long time admirer of foundation piecing, but never tried it - that is, until yesterday.
I had Sarah Fielke's book, a paper pattern, a tonne of scraps and You Tube. I was set!
I watched a few videos to start with (there are soooooo many available). Then I got to it. It wasn't too hard, just fiddly. My seam ripper had a major work out too.
I sat watching The Proposal (love Ryan Reynolds), last night with my tweezers, picking out the little bits of paper.
Before I knew it all the paper was out.
I've now basted it, ready for some hand quilting.
I admit the scraps I've used aren't very pretty, but hey, for a first attempt, I'm pleased.
I'll post a better picture when it's all quilted and bound. Perhaps I'll even manage a day light photo with my real camera. The iPhone at around 11pm isn't the greatest.
Have you foundation pieced before? Do you enjoy it?
